A transfer for Chelsea star 'would not be too ambitious'

Klaus Allofs, chief executive of VfL Wolfsburg, said in an interview: “A transfer of de Bruyne would not be too ambitious for us.”

Management knows that two or three world class players could leave the club sooner rather then later. So they are obviously preparing to fill possible holes.

As we reported earlier, Brazilian international Luiz Gustavo, who signed this season with the Bundesliga club, could become an option for the Gunners once again, after news of a 'big club' release clause in his contract was revealed. According to sources it could get activated after the World Cup.

Diego, Wolfsburg’s playmaker, could resign with the club but rumour has it that other teams are eyeing him too: Arsenal, Southampton and his former side Santos too.

And Wolfsburg also have to fear a bid for young gun Ricardo Rodriguez. He is eyed by some big name clubs like Chelsea and Barcelona.

Klaus Allofs, chief executive of VfL Wolfsburg, could face adversity if all rumours come true. But he is prepared for these possible absences as he said in an interview with German site spox.

Asked if the club of automotive company Volkswagen would drop the Kevin de Bruyne case, Allofs insisted:

“No, not in principle. We are always looking for more quality. Even if we do not hardly wait for the next transfer window, after all there is no emergency. But it is my duty to continue to search for reinforcements.“

Allofs continued to point out Wolfsburg’s options: “A transfer of de Bruyne would not be too ambitious for us. If we convince the players of our goals, anything is possible.”

The Wolfsburg executive seems to be prepared and thinks a de Bruyne transfer could happen in the winter as the Belgian international is looking for more playing time ahead of the World Cup.

Wolfsburg are an ambitious side on the fringes of European places, one where the De Bruyne could get some regular playing time ahead of the World Cup.

A permanent deal may be a gamble on the Belgian's part, but a loan switch could just be a wise solution.
